Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Christian Eriksen has reportedly agreed a contract with Inter Milan until 2024.
According to The Times’ Gary Jacob, the deal will earn him around £100,000 per week after tax at the San Siro.
Spurs are hoping to cash in on him in January before he leaves at the expiration of his contract in the summer, and they reportedly want in the region of £20 million for him.
However, according to Italian Media, the fee Tottenham are hoping to get for him is closer to £17 million, and on Tuesday and Wednesday there will be key meetings regarding the transfer.
It’s also said Eriksen has reduced his wage demands from an annual salary of £8.5 million (£163,000 per week) to £6.5 million (£125,000 per week) to help facilitate the move.
Inter’s pursuit of him has also been aided by a Growth Decree from the Italian government, which has provided them a 50 per cent tax reduction.
The 27-year-old has returned 69 goals and 89 assists in 302 appearances for Tottenham but just three apiece in 25 games this season.
Spurs boss Jose Mourinho confirmed the Dane will feature against Middlesbrough in the FA Cup on Tuesday and could play against Watford on Saturday, too.
Eriksen failed to impress against Liverpool as Spurs lost 1-0 on Saturday, and some sections of the Tottenham support made their feelings on his performances clear
A move to Inter could revitalise his career while he’s still at what should be the peak of his powers.
In his six full seasons at Spurs, he has reached double figures for goals on five occasions. The same goes for assists, so Inter will have an outstanding player on their hands if he can rediscover that form.
